The Non-Motivational Speaker Series returns to New York on Thursday, June 26 at 8 p.m. Curated and hosted by Adam Rosen, this monthly event features an above-average lineup of decidedly non-motivating authorities, each presenting views alternative and overlooked on a veritable goody bag of topics. A different theme will be tackled clothesline-style each month, including, but not limited to, comedy, amateur pornography, culture jamming, and religion.
Small Media will be this month's topic. Featured speakers are Anna Holmes [interview here], editor of Jezebel.com; Chez Pazienza aka Deus ex Malcontent [interview here], blogger par excellence, emmy-winning TV producer ([very] formerly of CNN), and PDF-published memoirist; and Robert Lanham [interview here], editor of FREEwilliamsburg and author of The Hipster Handbook and The Sinner's Guide to the Evangelical Right.
The event will start at 8 pm at the Happy Ending Lounge, and is free.
